#var:page_name# cover

Scholar and Actor Archer Ellwein brings Sgt. John Ordway to life in a first-person portrayal set in 1813. First Sgt. Ordway was the only
member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to record a journal entry
for every single day of the journey from Camp DuBois or Wood
River until their return. Learn about his perspective as he reminisces about "...the greatest adventure of my life." Later the audience has the opportunity to ask questions of the sergeant and then of the actor.
